Outdoors: BG-Mosquitaire + BG-GAT
The addition of the passive BG-GAT trap to the highly effective BG-Mosquitaire suction trap adds another dimension to your control effort of tiger mosquitoes (Asian tiger mosquito and yellow fever mosquito) outdoors. Tiger mosquitoes are predominantly found in subtropical and tropical countries where they can transmit diseases like dengue fever, chikungunya, or Zika. In the US, they are invasive species that have become significant pests and potential disease vectors throughout much of the southern half of the United States from California to New York:
While the BG-Mosquitaire targets tiger mosquitoes that are seeking a bloodmeal-host and want to bite you, the BG-GAT targets tiger mosquitoes that are looking for a place to lay their eggs. Each egg-laying female that is trapped can eliminate 50-100 offspring from the next generation and prevent the potential for disease transmission from virus infected mosquitoes.
With these two strategies, you can reduce biting pressure as well as the next generation of tiger mosquitoes.
Of course mosquitoes are not only found outdoors they also enter the house. In this case, the BG-Home indoor trap can help: it captures tiger mosquitoes and other flying pest insects inside the house.
Recommendation: BG-Booster CO2
Should you want to increase your outdoor catch rates even further, the best solution provides the BG-Mosquitaire plus CO2. The addition of CO2 in combination with the “BG-Booster CO2” makes the BG-Mosquitaire even more captivating for the broadest range of mosquitoes including flood water or dawn biting mosquitoes. The upgrade set “BG-Booster CO2” helps disperse the optimum dose of CO2.
